From Here to Eternity: Travelling the World to Find the Good Death

by Caitlin Doughty - £8.99  Orion Publishing Co (2019)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781474606530 | ISBN 10: 1474606539

A New York Times bestseller - an eye-opening, entertaining and thought-provoking account of a mortician's journey around the world to discover how other cultures care for their dead
 
As a practising mortician, Caitlin Doughty has long been fascinated by our pervasive terror of dead bodies. In From Here to Eternity she sets out in search of cultures unburdened by such fears. With curiosity and morbid humour, Doughty introduces us to inspiring death-care innovators, participates in powerful death practices almost entirely unknown in the West and explores new spaces for mourning - including a futuristic glowing-Buddha columbarium in Japan, a candlelit Mexican cemetery, and America's only open-air pyre. In doing so she expands our sense of what it means to treat the dead with 'dignity' and reveals unexpected possibilities for our own death rituals.
